His inept murderous career continues with yet another wedding postponement for his ultimately and inevitably failed attempt to construct an exploding carriage clock to get rid of the Dean of Chichester. Of course, there's a happy ending, but which would you prefer - a murder, or a wedding?

Is she genuinely second sighted as Lily believes or is she the charlatan Pam and Jane are convinced she is? The answers to these questions, and more, are to be found in this hilarious look at the lives of these women of a certain age.
